Great Britain’s Invictus Games squad unveiled in London | London

The squad which will represent Great Britain at the Invictus Games in Sydney later this year was unveiled in London on Tuesday.

Prime minister Theresa May was present as the 72-strong UK Team squad of wounded, injured and sick Veterans and Service Personnel met up for the first time at Horse Guards Parade.

The Invictus Games, which was founded by former soldier Prince Harry, will take place in Australia.

This year’s team is made up of 64% of people who have not yet appeared in the event, which started in 2014, before.

Richard Gamble, who will be competing in swimming, said: “For the last two and a half years, since my medical discharge, I’ve found it very hard mentally to progress over to civilian life, so coming back to the Invictus, you see people who are in the same position, all progressing through life and you’re not the only one going through it and you get that brotherhood back as well, which you dearly miss.
